Congrats Curtis on 50,000


I saw your posting on that Buy and Sell thread. Well done, though honestly, I've yet to figure out the method to your madness in constructing and deconstructing your kit. I think you have both too much time on your hands and too much money in your bank account...

Since your wife will be working a bit longer, maybe you need a part-time job...

Thanks, John, Georg and Kevin.

Georg, excuse me, but I am playing the devil's adjutant role right now:

next to your home!


Thanks, Jose! But the price-tag is a bit steep for me, at least for a non-Ai-lens that would be my fifth 105mm-Nikkor ;-)

Been trying to find a part time job and for the first time in my life got turned down. They picked someone else.
But for 37 years I had the same job so I guess I am 50/50 on job applications
As far as the lens go I am pretty much set that I will always keep the 28 2.8 ai-s and the 105 2.5 ai-s the rest can come and go

I never realized how much a classic car would cost after I bought it
My wife says it's worse than a "Gold Digging Girlfriend"

If I hadn't borrowed a friends d600 I had pretty much made up my mind on a D7000 and a Fuji x
It will take some getting used to the layout of the D600 as I loved the d300 and D700 buttons and controls. I am definitely a creature of habit but being able to crop the 24mp won me over as I am not much of a telephoto person.
I was struggling to find a way to get wide on a crop sensor so back to Full Frame
As far as mirrorless goes maybe another generation of improvement and they might win me over.Why can't Nikon develop something along the lines of the Fuji


Reagan

I haven't been commenting lately on the photos much but you all continue to out do each other
I don't remember who posted the photos of the northern lights in Alaska but I wish he had posted larger images of them

Since so many of you like images of rust, here is my sample. There is an art installation on the American River College campus. Uses augers as the pieces.

Thank you everyone for the comments on the ice window image. In keeping with Kevin's kick-off theme for our second 50000 posts, "Rust", here is a little more oxidation. Taken with the 105 2.5 ais at f4.

Curtis, glad you made the 50000th post. I hope you plan on joining us on a regular basis and not just hiding until we reach post #100000. Thank you for making this all happen.

Heh I spent my afternoon simply staring at the sea, the open skies and chatting up fishermen too
Not an easy task in crowded Singapore

The mornings however, was reserved for the interiors gig I now regularly attend to...
This seems innocuous enough:

Leighton, Peter, Curtis, Georg, Laura, and Scott, thank you for the comments on my buffalo shot.

Ray, I am sorry to hear about your mother. My prayers to you and your family.

Here are a few from a session last night with Jordan, all shot with the 55mm ƒ1.2. I hadn't shot in the studio for awhile now, so it was nice to dust off the lights and play around. I also shot a fun series with Brennon and Jordan, but that was with AF (Gasp!), so I won't be showing those here.

–Tony

Well, I feel I have to confess. I spent some money today. I purchased a D800 and a lens. Ya, an AF lens,
A 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S

It's kinda nice. One of my first thoughts was the possibility of selling some of my overlapping MF lenses. As I went down the list of my MF lenses I could not think of one that I should sell. I guess I'll just hord them

Congrats on the new kit Monty! I love both my D800 and 24-70.

I'm sorry Leighton I just haven't had a chance to do a direct comparison. I can say for sure that as far as color, contrast, clarity and bokeh the 1.4 is a clear winner. Nikki has a nice bokeh but the 1.4 is butter Not to say that I have been displeased with Nikki. I think she performs quite well. Here are some photos from Bok Tower that I took today.

Couple of shots from a week ago...finally got around to posting them. You folks (along with the MF kit I now have) are really forcing me to get things right in camera before doing anything in post. These three have less than 5 minutes of post work done on them. The two abstracts are converted to B/W using channel mixer in PS6. Hope to give SEP a try this weekend.

Please, C&C the heck out of these. I feel I had hit a plateau with my photography and had lost the fire I once had. Not sure what changed in my

John,

I haven't shoot much with it but I like it so far. The distortion seems to be better than the f2.8 just a little. Sharpness about the same to me. Here are some shots I just did a few hours ago with the D700. Handheld at low speed since I wanted the water to flow but this might hurt the sharpness because it was COLD.

Wow, that looks cold!

Leighton, another thing to consider is if you are prone to take nightscapes with a lot of lights - note the difference in the number of rays of light coming from light souces:

Great nightscape, Jose. I prefer the starbusrts in the 85mm ƒ1.4 myself.

Amazingly, the high temperature today was 67 degrees. Sorry to hear about snow falling in the midlands but then I made my decision long ago to leave the snows of Minnesota behind. I'm afraid California has spoiled me...

It has spoiled me as well Curtis! I always love a good fence shot and this is way above good.
